Abstract

This paper examines learners’ views and understanding of designing functional models with robotics. Pre-experimental design was used to examine participants’ journals; as the participants were natural part of the learning environment, there was no random selection for this research. This study concludes that robotics is a noteworthy educational tool to create an interdisciplinary learning environment that also improves students’ teamwork, collaboration skills, and plenty of time for developing deep understanding through active engagement and motivation. The findings of this study indicate that “Robotics” as an educational tool can provide multidirectional impacts on model-based reasoning and is appropriately used in model-construction and model-revision learning processes.
